Movie Info

When has-been baseball player Jack Elliot (Tom Selleck) is signed by a Japanese team, he is initially reluctant to take the game seriously. Elliot is very successful, though, as he teaches the team about American chutzpah, and they remind him of the value of respect. He must fight his way out from under a slump to show that he deserves the title. ~ John Bush, Rovi

If Mr Baseball were a Major League team, it would be the Chicago Cubs; friendly, occasionally successful, but never likely to amount to much more than a .500 season.

So, that's what happened to Mr. Selleck's career!

Stupid comedy that's insulting to both Baseball and the Japanese.

Screamingly unfunny baseball tripe.

Audience Reviews for Mr. Baseball

I could almost say Tom Selleck is a hero of mine, mainly due to his mustache and chest hair that are constantly finding ways to present itself to the audience, it's ridiculous and borderline impressive. Decent fish out of water film with classic cheese.

Another lame fish out of water comedy that sees an ageing baseball star relocated to Japan. Not one cliche is left unturned.
